Abstract


Growth is the fundamental and universal process of life of any living organism. Human growth always has remarkable attention for the physical anthropologists as well as the health scientists. On basis of growth we can assess the health status of children which is the need of any country under national health policy. Therefore, such study is important for the policy makers for the formulation of various health plans and policies. Tribals constitute 8.6% of the total Indian population and for providing better health care facility, such study is very important. Keeping this in view, the present study has been carried out among 383 Korku & 338 Gond girls (aged 6-18 years) of Bhimpur block of Betul district of Madhya Pradesh, India.

Similar type of growth trends has been observed among both the tribal girls as they reside in same type of ecological condition and socio-economic & nutritional status.
